Publisher's Summary

With his older brother's betrothal announced, Lord Michael Cynster is freed of all familial expectations. But the allure of his previous hedonistic pursuits has paled. Then he learns of the mission his brother and his fiancée have been assisting with and volunteers to help by hunting down a hoard of gunpowder now stashed somewhere in London.

Michael's quest leads him to the Hendon Shipping Company, where his sole source of information is the fetchingly attractive Miss Cleome Hendon. When Michael asks about the carters who transported the gunpowder, Cleo offers him a bargain: she will lead him to the carters he seeks, but only if he agrees to include her as an equal partner in the mission.

But their investigation proves dangerous, and the further they go in tracing the gunpowder, the more deaths they uncover. Soon Michael and Cleo find themselves tangled in a fight for their lives - one that forces them to face what has grown between them, to seize and defend what they both see as their path to the greatest adventure of all: a shared life, a shared future, a shared love.

Pare it down

Not the author’s best. Story was okay but it had so much repetitive review of the plot I kept skipping forward to listen for some action in the story. I am reluctant to start the last book of the trilogy.

Never Again

I will never again select a book ruined by this narrator. Audible you should do better. There are too many good narrators to use one so bad as this.

Sloooowww

Dull, boring, repetitive, predictable. Story could have been told in a third of the pages.

A book and good narrator, but BAD end result.

The book MIGHT have been very fun, and the narrator was good, but the two did NOT mesh well together. Finishing this book was honestly a chore. It's a shame because neither of the two were were bad, they just didn't mesh well. The story DRAGS along, and the narrator's speed and speech patterns slow it down more. He is good at what he does, but when you have a detailed book, and a methodical narrator.... Oh and it became a game to count how many times the phrase, "gun powder" could be used in a single chapter.

DISAPPOINTED!

This was disappointing. instead of having one really good book it was split into three. This book was like the slow detailed middle of a book. One mediocre danger scene and an equally mediocre love scene. This is not what I've come to expect from this author.

Great Series...I can't wait for Louisa's story....

i still miss Simon Prebble but Matthew Brenher is getting better on the narrations....Story is great...Jack Heddon's daughter was not mentioned on any of the Cynster's Series so i was not aware of her existence.. but she's perfect for Michael..

least engaging storyline of the trilogy.

the story was ok. fwd through the sex scences, never got to point of suspension of disbelief. it filled the storyline holes the other two left.

Slow, but still enjoyable

If you read Stephanie Laurens purely for plot development or erotic content, this one is definitely slow moving and may disappoint. However, if you enjoy the color and character development it’s a nice ride. And if you want to read the third and final chapter, and have only read the first, then it’s a must.

warning: mystery book without ending

this "book" ends abruptly without solving the plot. the author left me feeling cheated. pity! I was enjoying the characters, the plot and the narration. but I'll never buy another Lauren's book before verifying it contains the entire story!
